Community Development Product Council

Content and best practices will be shared through four programs planned over the course of 2 years. Membership is renewed annually. The Colorado Product Councils provide opportunity for leadership and volunteer involvement in ULI at the local level, by promoting excellence in programming and fostering a culture of openness and sharing of issues critical to the land use planning and real estate development industries.

Key benefits:

– A think-tank and resource for best practice sharing and collaboration
– Includes top real estate professionals only
– Build professional relationships in close-knit, small group format (40 max)
– Opportunity open to Full Members and Associate Members only
– Minimal fees – to cover costs of twice annual meetings

Community Development Product Council Program:

ULI Colorado’s Community Development Council seeks to engage
community developers from across the market’s breadth: those creating place in the suburban arena and those bringing life and community into the urban core.

Past topics have included: market rate affordability and attainable housing, innovation in suburban and urban community development, a fresh look at amenity design for master planned communities, current thinking on designing for density, the latest updates on regulatory issues and new legislation,  and how to make healthy communities.

Our Council Days include spirited  panel discussions, collaborative round table sessions,  and project tours led by ULI Leaders. Past agendas are available for review below. Our first meeting of the new council is planned for mid-September and will feature the topic, “Disruption.”
